The play takes place around a dockside cafe in 1970s Naples, Italy, where the leading character, Scapino, devises a complex plot to help two pairs of lovers fight against parental opposition that, it turns out, may not actually exist. Scapino is a rapscallion, a fast-talking, quick-thinking scamp who cleverly manipulates and cajoles everyone into doing what Scapino intends them to do. Frank Dunlop and Jim Dale have created a non-stop comedy with slapstick, acrobatics and burlesque, and although ''Scapino'' is not a musical, it is punctuated with songs that give the evening a zany and magical feel. Some bawdy comedy.
